Graphene-Based Water Purification.
The common term for a category of processes that make water more acceptable for consumption, medicinal use, agricultural use, and so on, is water purification. In order to eliminate or reduce current water pollutants to the point that the water is suitable for use, a water purification procedure is intended. In the last few years, to improve water purification systems, revolutionary approaches such as nanotechnology have been researched. Graphene is a two-dimensional mesh arranged in the shape of a honeycomb lattice of carbon atoms.
Thanks to a startlingly broad collection of beneficial properties, it has received the tag, “miracle material.” As researchers work on several different types of graphene-based materials, each with specific qualities and designations, it is thought that graphene could revolutionize the entire industry. The current chapter summarizes and reviews the new research and published literature on water purification materials based on graphene. Adsorption, photocatalysis, membrane filtration, and electrochemical water purification are the primary methods discussed.
